Here’s To Your Health Dog Treat Recipe

It’s Nutrition Month here at PetGuide and we wanted to give you a recipe that’s both nutritious and delicious. And we think our Here’s To Your Health Dog Treat Recipe fits the bill on both accounts. Brewer’s yeast is often considered one of nature’s “wonder foods” because of its remarkable health benefits. It’s a natural source of vitamin B complex and contains concentrated amounts of protein and other vitamins and minerals. Flax seeds add Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Lignans and fiber into the mix. This recipe also features eggs, oats and cheese – all yummy and healthy ingredients your dog will love.


Here’s To Your Health Dog Treat Recipe


Makes 30-40 Cookies


Ingredients:


1 3/4 cups rolled oats


3/4 cup flax seeds


2/3 cup brewer’s yeast


1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded


1 cup brown rice flour


2 cups oat flour


2 tablespoons honey


1 3/4 cups chicken broth


2 eggs


Directions:


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  2. Combine oats, flax seed, brewer’s yeast, cheese, rice flour, oat flour and honey in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk chicken broth and eggs, then add to oat mixture. This should make a stiff dough.
  4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, then flatten into discs (this dough is sticky, so cutting them with a cookie cutter is difficult). Place on non-stick cookie sheets.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes, until dry and the edges turn a light golden brown.
  6. Place on cooling racks before giving them to your dog.
